(for a research paper) Should Religion be taught in school at an educational level?

I am writting a research paper for my english 200 college class. This is a poll. I cant find polls on here anymore lol. Just answer yes or no, I dont need a reason why I just need a yes or no answer. I believe that if religion is taught in school at an educational level it will teach tollerance of other religions. That is what my paper is about! Thanks ladies!

  • I do believe religion should be taught, or at least the philosophy behind it, but only if ALL religions are addressed.

  • You mean like teaching about lots of different religions and explaining their beliefs to students, rather than teaching one religion as the right one?

    Yes, I think that's great. I got that in a philosophy class in college, and just loved it.

  • yes teaching about all religions so people with common misconseptions can put them aside. It will teach tolerance of muslims and other catholics kinda thing. Covers all major religions on an educational level.

  • History of religions should be taught not whether or not we should be tolerant but that we learn the history. If that is what you mean then yes , if not then no.
